The Easy To Follow Guide To Setting Up Your GPS Car DVD

Author Administrator 7.4.2009. | 12:10

So you’ve bought a China car DVD with GPS and you’re all exited. No more fiddling with maps and asking strangers for directions and you didn’t need to take out a second mortgage on the house.

Excellent!

Unfortunately there’s going to be a good chance there’s a problem. the software you’ve got may well be cracked or at best the sample version.

So it means that you could be in the middle of nowhere heading to your destination and then lose access to your GPS system.

That’s if the options you had suited your area anyway.

So how do you get the authorized, full version of the navigation software that suits your area from the computer to your car DVD player?

Thankfully getting your hands on GPS software is not a difficult task.

You can either talk to your local GPS product dealer or, directly from the software provider’s website.

This is a list of some of the bigger GPS software providers:

  • TomTom
  • Route 66
  • Magellan

Most China car DVD players are compatible with windows compatible software.

Once you get the software just put it onto a SD card (if you buy it from a bricks and mortar supplier this is how you will probably have it delivered).

Now it’s just a case of getting that SD card into your GPS Car DVD Player and getting the software running.

    I have installed TomTom 7.9 on my Street Ninja 7″ but it is doesn’t work. The time shown jumps randomly – I thought I could live with that by turning off the time indication on the info bar. The trouble is that when you start to move the map display jumps all over the place and this affects the voice commands. After a short time the display just freezes and will only jump around again when I touch the screen. I think the display jumping is linked to the random time because on the odd occasion that the time is not jumping navigation works. I would really love to get TomTom working as this was one of the reasons I bought the Street Ninja. I know how to use Mortscript to adjust any settings on the WinCE 5.0 installation but don’t know what needs to be changed, any information would be appreciated.

    I bought the CVSA-C09 (5″ TFT w/ GPS and Blutooth) and TomTom Navigator 6.0. I installed the “Pocket PC” version to a 4GB SD card and installed it into the stereo. I found the start.exe file and slected it to run. I then get some kind of error message in Chinese (I think). The only thing I can make out is the reference to TTN.CAB and Windows CE. The TomTom screen and sound plays in the background when I press the button provided then the Nav screen closes. Can anyone tell me what the error screen means or how they configured TomTom Navigator to work? -Thanks.

    Well, I bought the RoadMaster Multimedia Entertainment System and had it installed 3 months. I have tried many times to install the GPS software and failed every single time.
    I wish someone would publish a list of steps to install Tom Tom 6 Navigator software. IF anyone on this blog knows the steps email them to me please. My email is lowdermilks@hotmail.com. Or if someone knows the name of the file that runs Tom Tom 6, send me the name of the file? Please.

    It was so very impressive to have GPS tracker in our car. I’m so joyful in my driving experience while using my GPS tracker device.

    Hi I can`t see your flash presentation. I have a mp5 with gps chinese installed on a kia. I tried copying software on a microsd but It never worked. And gps never finds anything on that microsd. No folders or anything. I was wondering If there is some king of ini file that tell paths to directories. Microsd works fine with mp3 slot

    Hi, I have a new Android dvd car player. The GPS button just takes me to the home screen. The instruction told me that iGO would be on the SD card..iIt wasn’t. Anywho, I installed freeNAV which works ok. But how do I bind that to the GPS button or will that always take me to the Android home screen?
